Manure nutrient trends and creating dynamic “book values” through ManureDB

A Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Community Webinar

1:30 pm – 2:40 pm
Leslie Johnson, (402) 584-3818,
Most manure book values used today from the MidWest Plan Service (MWPS) and American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) were derived from manure samples prior to 2003. To update these manure test values, the University of Minnesota in partnership with the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute (MSI) and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is working to build a dynamic manure test database called ManureDB. The database will meet FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) to ensure the data is shared and used by a wide audience. During this database construction, the University of Minnesota collected manure data spanning the last decade from five labs across the country. Trends, similarities, and challenges arose when comparing these samples. Having current manure test numbers will assist in more accurate nutrient management planning, manure storage design, manure land application, and serve agricultural modeling purposes.
